We help founders accelerate growth

As technology continues to disrupt traditional industries and create brand new ones, the role of entrepreneurs in starting and scaling innovative tech-led businesses is ever-more important.

Discover how we’re working in partnership with founders, investors and advisors to accelerate the design, build and launch of complex digital products - unlocking new levels of customer experience and increasing commercial value.

What happens when Monstarlab partners with scaling businesses?

We’ve partnered with 25+ teams of founders, advisors and investors in the last few years, with some pretty impressive outcomes:

- We developed a client app in a brand new vertical that enabled a $3.1 billion acquisition

- We reduced product launch time from 18-months to 4-months to hit investor milestones

- We pivoted a fintech idea, raised £5M+ in funding, incubated it for 8 months, then handed it to the team we helped hire

- We proved technical feasibility for a revolutionary fintech, raised £2.5M and are currently incubating the entire platform

If you’d like to talk more about what we do and how we do it, we’d love to chat.
